Emerald Falls although a nice walk, 20-30 minutes if you are fit, is certainly worth the visit. The... read more

Beautiful falls and pool. I’d recommend water shoes because stepping over those rocks to swim in the cold (yes, very cold) water is rough. Photo stops last a few mins, so you can get a good photo if you wait a couple of minutes.

The drive through the Morne Trois Pitons Natural park to get to the visitor point for the Emerald Pool is one of the most spectacular I have seen anywhere. Dense green forest with amazing plants and trees at every turn, up a helter-skelter of a road - hats off to the driver of the open-air island bus for negotiating every hairpin bend with such aplomb.

Early in the trip from the capital Roseau, we passed the now-famous landmark of the yellow schoolbus crushed by a massive baobab tree which fell during Hurricane David in 1979 (no-one was hurt). The sheer size and scale of this sets the parameters for the journey to follow.

Dominica is very mountainous, being a volcanic island, with amazingly lush green vegetation everywhere. The bus takes about 60-80 mins through this fantastic scenery. Once we got as close as the bus could go, we made the rest of the trip on foot, for about 10-15 minutes along a very scenic forest path - look out for all the different birds, plants etc. The path is a bit rough n ready and there are numerous steps up and down before you get to the Emerald Pool and Waterfall, but it is well worth the effort.

If you believe the legend, you can feel 10 years younger after a dip in the pool. Several people went for it. They certainly all came out smiling.

Easy access through a well maintained trail in the rain forest. Emerald pool is simply stunning for the vegetation surrounding it, the fall itself and the enjoyable very cool swim. A must when travelling to Dominica Island

We had a brilliant taxi driver who took us a round the island and we went to emerald falls ! What a place , after a bit of a mild hike we came across this beautiful water , in the middle of the rain forest .
Luckily we all had our swimming gear on and went in , it was freezing , but fantastic . It was a bit of a ungamely entrance to the start of pool , but well worth it . In the car park were you purchase your ticket they sell food and drinks , the toilets were clean , and a few Nick knack stalls in the car park .not wheel chair friendly

We arrived at Emerald Falls just as the sun was starting to go down, so we didn't get the light necessary for the pool to showoff it's beautiful green color. But, it was magical, nonetheless. The water was refreshing and the little cave overhang was fun to sit in - waist high water. The hike to the falls is minimal, about 10 minutes from a parking lot. A German couple were the only others there at the time. It would be best to go very early or late in order to avoid the Cruise Ship tourists - which come in hordes we heard. It was delightful to have the Falls to ourselves, for the most part.
